IMHO the situation is changing too quickly to have something persistent.

The issue is that in the long run the testboard should be available
without administrative access to TUM, e.g. via github.  Still a long way
to go.  Nevertheless it is useful to keep alive collective knowledge how
to test without further infrastructure.

Alas.  The mira impetus from two years ago is currently fading away…  It
will require concerted effort to set it on track again.
